      Performing some needed maintenance

      From day 1, there has been a consistent clunk noise whenever the left rear wheel would hit any sort of bump (no matter how small). We put the car on a lift at...

      Wow! I know you hinted at this possibility earlier in this thread, but I wasn't sure if you'd go through with it.



      I feel very similarly. My maximum range is a little less than yours, of...

      Completely this. I've been living the multi-car plan for about 25 years now. Way back when I was a teenager, I defined six categories for vehicles that I hoped to fill. After all these years, I am...

      Irony: I had just read all that safety info last night. Since it was so new to me, I figured I'd go ahead and share it anyway.

      (Truth be told, when I was watching the video I really wished those...

      Unfortunately, you are wrong--there was no way for Darwin to teach those girls a lesson. There are multiple redundant safeties built into EV charging systems. For example, let me address the J-1772...

      Looks like somebody skipped their Adulting 101 class.

      And now I know why these charging stations have all their safeguards in place.

      Umm, maybe it's you.

      My fancy new JuiceBox Pro arrived back on May 17th. Since that time, it has sat in my garage, quietly gathering dust, while I waited for the day when someone could help me install a 240v outlet in...

      A small update.

      In these first two weeks of ownership, I have already put over 500 miles on this thing. Other than one short pleasure drive to DQ in the Grand Prix, I have driven nothing but the...

      I've never even sat in an i3. Are they that much larger inside than a Leaf???

      :laugh: Now that I re-read what I typed, I see how it could be interpreted this way--I sound like a lunatic. In my defense, I clarify three things:


      My only motivation to do this was as a...

      Dude, what is happening to me? I'm getting hooked on this little thing.

      To date, I've done all my charging at my work. We have one L2 charging station there, and I quietly park by it and plug in...

      In the off chance that anyone missed my purchase thread, I joined the EV Lounge this week. My chariot is a 2013 Leaf SV with 54k miles:

      (sorry to re-use this photo, but it's the only one I have...

      Ah, okay.



      I did begin driving it yesterday, yes. I haven't made any fanfare about it yet for a couple of reasons, but I expect to 'go public' in the next few days. For now, I'm just charging...

      Since getting the car home, have you used any public charge stations? Or have you done all your charging at home?

      You ain't just whistlin' Dixie.


      Mike and I met at work, ready for adventure. I had decided we would drive to NPS to browse around, then stop somewhere along the return trip for lunch. Ever the...

      And as I've said many times (though perhaps not in this thread), I genuinely admire the Volt for its engineering excellence.



      Then what is the explanation for the 500e?



      Is this true for...

      Just so ya know: I did go and drive a 500e this afternoon. Here is the exact car:

      Just as TCL told me, it was definitely more entertaining than the Leaf. It...

      Yep, and a 2013 at 79.7% capacity has lost just under 3.4% per year. To put it another way, the 2013 has lost 3.7% per 10,000 miles... and that 2016 has lost 3.43% per 10,000 miles. That really...
